The honors are starting to stack up for Gonzaga’s Johnathan Williams.

The senior forward was named first-team All-District 9 by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) on Tuesday.

Williams leads the Zags at 13.5 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. He’s joined by Emmett Naar and Jock Landale of Saint Mary’s and BYU’s Elijah Bryant and Yoeli Childs on the first team.

Gonzaga’s Josh Perkins and Rui Hachimura earned second-team honors for District 9, which includes the West Coast and Big West conferences. San Diego’s Isaiah Pineiro, Santa Barbara’s Max Heidegger and Cal State Fullerton’s Kyle Allman also made the second team.

Perkins, Hachimura and Williams were first-team All-WCC selections. Williams was named to the U.S. Basketball Writers Association All-District IX team last week. He’s also a finalist for the Senior CLASS Award.
